Although his attempt at prying Wu-Tang‘s mythical Once Upon A Time in Shaolin album from the cold hands of the AIDS pill price gouger-slash-douchebag was futile, Wu-affiliate Matthew “M-Eighty” Markoff is still making moves to bless Wu fans with new music moving forward.
Teaming up with Ghostface Killah, the two masterminded a new project called The Lost Tapes, which will be produced entirely by longtime DopeHouse resident and indie producer Big Ghost.
“This new Ghostface x Big Ghost album is definitely something that is going to blow the minds of Wu_Tang and Hip-Hop fans alike,”M-Eighty says while revealing the collective goal in calling it The Lost Tapes was to bring fans back to the Ironman x Supreme Clientele x Cuban Linx era sound.
Dropping on October 5th, GFK’s rendition of The Lost Tapes is stacked with features including Raekwon, Snoop Dogg, KXNG Crooked, Big Daddy Kane, Benny the Butcher, Bishop Lamont, and more. Michael Rappaport was also tagged to play host.
